Mike Trout hit a three-run homer off Derek Holland and walked Wednesday as the Angels edged the Rangers 5-4.

Who said Trout isn't making a difference in meaningful games in September? He's hit .306 with three homers, 11 RBI and 14 walks in 19 games this month. All but two of those games have come against teams in the mix for a spot in the postseason.

Mike Trout was undone by Taijuan Walker in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, striking out in each of his three at-bats.

Trout entered the game 9-for-11 with three home runs against Walker, but the pitcher turned the tide on the slugger in Tuesday's contest by fanning him three times in a complete game effort. Of late, Trout has been a little whiff happy, with 10 strikeouts in his last 18 at-bats. He is hitting .319/.435/.561 with 27 homers, 89 RBI and 25 steals for the season as a whole.

Mike Trout had a good game in a losing cause versus the Rangers on Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base.

He singled in the first inning and was left stranded. He lifted a sacrifice fly to drive in a run in the third inning. In the bottom of the seventh he singled, stole third base and scored on a C.J. Cron double. Trout is having yet another monster season. He is batting .322/.440/.571 with 27 homers, 88 RBI, 109 runs scored and 24 stolen bases.

Mike Trout and Albert Pujols are out of the Angels' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia did the same thing last Wednesday -- giving his two biggest stars the same day of rest. "When guys need days off might not really mesh exactly where you’d like it to," Scioscia told reporters this afternoon. "This is a good day to have them both out, then pick it up on Friday again."
Sep 7 - 2:50 PM

Mike Trout hit a three-run homer and walked twice Friday against the Mariners.

Trout can't be the AL MVP, because his team's front office has done a lousy job of acquiring talent, but at least he can still be the league's best player. He's up to 26 homers, and he leads the majors with a .438 OBP.

Mike Trout will travel with the Angels to Seattle on Thursday afternoon.

Trout was involved in an automobile accident on the 55 freeway in Santa Ana, California following Wednesday night's game against the Reds, but he came away uninjured. The Orange County Register has a picture of his damaged Mercedes at the link below. "I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine," Angels GM Billy Eppler said in a statement late Wednesday. "He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle tomorrow afternoon. We will update as more information becomes available."

Mike Trout was reportedly unhurt in an automobile accident following Wednesday's Angels game.

CBS Los Angeles reported that Trout was involved in the crash and that there was one serious injury, but that Trout was not hurt. Trout didn't play Wednesday night in what was labeled a rare routine day off for the MVP candidate.
Sep 1 - 1:33 AM

Mike Trout is getting the day off Wednesday.

And so is Albert Pujols, which gives the Angels' lineup a spring training look. Rafael Ortega is in center field and Kole Calhoun is at DH versus the Reds.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Without the two most dangerous bats in the LAA lineup, things are shifting drastically for several of the Angels regulars. Andrelton Simmons will move to the leadoff spot, but the bats we want to target here are the 3-4-5 hitters. C.J. Cron (.185 ISO vs. LHP), Jefry Marte (.245 ISO vs. LHP) and Jett Bandy (.316 ISO vs. LHP) are all available at low price tags across the industry, and they possess considerable upside against the erratic Brandon Finnegan (2.08 HR/9 vs. RHBs).
Aug 31 - 3:49 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and a walk in the win over the Reds on Monday.

Trout is the AL's best player, again. He probably won't be the MVP, again. Enjoy it anyway. With his two runs scored tonight, he reached the century mark for the fifth straight season. He's scored 78 more runs in anyone in baseball (557, Ian Kinsler next at 479) during that span.
Aug 30 - 1:13 AM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored as the Angels doubled up the Blue Jays 6-3 on Thursday.

Trout did all his damage with singles, plating two with a single in the sixth inning before coming through with another two-run single in the seventh. He's now got 82 RBI to go with 97 runs scored -- third-most in the American League -- and a .316/.432/.555 line. He also recently became a member of the 20/20 club, owning 24 homers and 21 steals through 126 games.
Aug 25 - 11:08 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run on Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

The game's best player fills the box score on a nightly basis and tonight was no exception. He is batting .312/.430/.553 with 24 home runs, 96 runs scored and 78 RBI. He has been running more this year as well, contributing 21 valuable stolen bases to his fantasy owners' riches.
Aug 24 - 11:14 PM

Mike Trout collected his 23rd homer and 20th stolen base Monday against the Mariners.

Trout is back in the 20/20 club after a two-year absence (he stole 16 bases in 2014 and 11 last year). It's the third time he's gotten there in his career. He and Don Baylor (also three times, 1978-80) are the only Angels to have multiple 20 HR/20 SB seasons.
Aug 16 - 2:14 AM

Mike Trout is absent from the Angels' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the superstar. Andrelton Simmons is also getting a breather, as the Halos are going with Nick Buss in center field and Cliff Pennington at shortstop.

He hit the home run in the first inning and tripled home a run in the third frame. The superstar is batting .319/.431/.560 with 21 homers, 88 runs scored, 74 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
